Offering Luminaries A Place to Cultivate
Enjoy A Little Peace & Ease
While on Your Journey to Become
Who You are Meant to Be....
Is it possible to ease into workplace pleasure, success and happiness-daily? I have reached to build these pillars for years with my hammer, saw and chisel. I have at times exerted enough energy to attain the feelings I most desire, but this place of well-being is fleeting.
It is Wednesday morning and I am sitting in my hotel room. I was unexpectedly gifted with a relaxed morning. My meeting delayed by three hours. This has left a space that feels as big as the grand canyon. The ease and good feeling I have in this moment arrived in my heart with absolutely zero effort. This leaves me to question my regular morning ritual, or any routine for that matter. Might my morning choices be the only reason I don’t feel peaceful most days?Generally my morning thoughts point to all the external obligations and timetables. Although these will never cease to exist, perhaps I can find a more solitary practice that allows this feeling to last longer, and return with little effort.
I believe that this mornings ease arrived because I did not have to entertain anyones agenda or mood. I started my meditation and found that five minutes felt good. I let that be enough, rather than force myself to wait for the ten minute chime. I resisted the urge to check work emails. As I watched the morning news rather than feel obligated to listen, I wished everyone well and turned off the TV. I selected the song that I have had on repeat on my iPhone and sang in the bathroom at the top of my lungs as my hair took shape with little effort, my makeup landed on my face with perfection and my eyes looked crystal clear. I even smiled as I drank english breakfast tea, scented with coffee aromas from the hotel coffee maker. This is not my favorite flavor.
I have found that I have breathed deeper and with more intention this morning than in the last month. Todays flow is mine, and I believe that it all is here because I was in my body and truly in my space. Rather than reading the room or being on guard and preparing for the next event, emotion or slung arrow that might come my way.
I am beginning to ponder that perhaps the ease I desire is more about honoring me first, not waiting for left over time to be used for myself.
Today's Grand Design: If I wait for the time that there is enough room for me to have time for me, I will be waiting far more of my life for someday- rather than first giving myself permission to enjoy me.
Ritual of Me: I will honor my needs and meet them without dismissing another call by my soul to notice what I need in the moment. I will honor what I need today. I will listen to my desires and needs first and remember to breathe deeply throughout the day.
